Hoping for a clean, hard fought, injury FREE series.
Can someone tell me with the best places to look for projected lineups as well as who's injured and expected back for this series? I am doing the GDT for Game 1 for us. Thanks
lineup should look similar to our game 7 against buffalo. carter hopes to be back at some point in the series but he's doubtful for game 1, i believe the same goes for nodl but there hasn't been an update on him recently.
[QUOTE=windycity;32747463]Habs fan here. To be honest, I don't like the Flyers but nothing near as much as I hate the Bruins. So please beat them.
Oh and knock the snot out of Marchand please. [/QUOTE
Listen, Bs or Habs - I could care less for either one of them, but if anyone needs the snot knocked out of him - that would be PK Subban - mouthy rook!
Anyways - my observations of the Bs (watched game 5 and 7 in person at the Garden)
1. They are slow
2. Creativity is non-existent on offense
3. McQuad and Boychuk - are defensive liabilities.
4. Even IF Lucic and Krejchi show up - that still only gives them two lines that can do something.
5. They give WAY too much freedom to the opposing team in the neutral zone - that will allow Flyers skilled guys to operate at high speeds (Flyers FINALLY shut down the neutral zone in Game 7 - lets hope that that will continue)
I have the Flyers in 5. Don't care about the goaltending - theirs is better - our forwards are better. PP and PK - if we play at top speed at all times - we will dominate.
There is a reason why I really liked the Bs advancing - they were "beat up" by the refs for no reason just like the Flyers were. May, just may be - we will have a shot at a balanced and fair refereeing of the series (I know, I know - pipedream, but still - I think with Habs, TB or ##itsburgh we would have had much less of a chance at that).
